Mercedes Huff discovered Jackson Hole on a ski trip, fell in love with the area, and never left. Over 50 years later, she continues to share her love of Jackson. Skiing and enjoying the outdoor lifestyle turned into a family affair. She and her husband, a 25-year veteran of the JH Ski Patrol, raised two daughters, one a graduate of Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine, and the other her business partner at Huff / Vaughn / Sassi.
Having grown up in New Canaan, CT, Mercedes can still recall her life-changing decision to leave Smith College and move west to finish her degree. She understands the issues of relocating, and for the past 42 years she has used her professional skills to help her clients find the right property and make the move to Jackson a smooth transition. Licensed since 1979, her experience runs deep in marketing her listings and identifying properties for her customers, including luxury homes, condominiums, vacant land, and conservation easement parcels.
A founding partner of Jackson Hole Realty (JHR), Mercedes played an integral part in making it the largest, top-producing real estate firm in Jackson. JHR was acquired by Sotheby’s International Realty in 2003, of which she is now an Associate Broker. She stays committed to offering personal service to her customers and is involved by having served on boards such as the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole. She is a longtime supporter of Old Bill's Fun Run, where she and Huff / Vaughn / Sassi are Gold Business co-challengers for the iconic annual fundraiser.
Professionally, Mercedes was recognized as 'Realtor of the Year' for 2016 by Teton Board of Realtors. Huff / Vaughn / Sassi is consistently ranked among the top sales teams in the state of Wyoming, and was recognized within the Top-100 producing agents and sales teams worldwide by Sotheby's International Realty for 2022.
Mercedes knows the valley well since calling it home in 1972. She has a wealth of knowledge regarding the area schools, programs offered by organizations such as the Center for the Arts and Grand Teton Music Festival, and activities such as golfing, fishing, and skiing. Always there, helping people find the perfect home, Mercedes delivers unparalleled service with an easy-going approach and enthusiasm plus experience that are unmatched.
